    Ok, so this has been bothering me for a while... Is it pronounced "you avionics", "mu avionics" or "micro avionics"?

    The u is silent. It stands for a gender exclusive term, “unmanned,” and is therefore no longer eligible for capitalization or pronunciation. Equality for all, but not for all letters. ;)

    In an un-POA move, I used the Ace of Spades as a first move deflating any other quibble about the matter.... it’s right from the horses mouth.

    You are going to believe someone who doesn't know there is no '"e" in "Bacon"?

    I always pronounced it with the "A" silent as in U-vonics. Of course, I'm wrong, just ask my wife.
